Dabbled a bit. Jonathan apples are decended from Esopus Spitzenberg apples
which was found in Esopus, NY in the late 1700s. ES apples are of unknown
"parentage". 150 aprox. yrs. not very close so no chocolate for me.

So boiling it down, I want to know:
** which of the typical commercial apples available generally in the
US are as close as one can come to SCA- period apples**
(might also help Canadians, but you guys grow your own :-)
(plus I concede that in this case it'll have to be European apples)
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
the persona formerly known as Anahita
